Probably my own fault. I didn't check this book out more throughly before purchasing. I got a recommendation from a few friends yet I had NO IDEA it was of the erotic genre. Overall the performance of the bimbo sounding narrator and the overuse of the the same words and phrases are the biggest disappointment.
The writing. Its like she wrote the story adding in every adverb ending in "ly" she could find. Also, she overuses the same words/phrases... "where is this going?" "he said sardonically" "hooded eyes" maybe thats how erotic novels are thus the reason I'm not that interested.
Not sound like a bimbo/valley girl. Her perky, air headed voice is really annoying.
I think I just picked the wrong type of book :S
I might. In the middle I got a little bored with the story but I actually like all the facts and social science part she incorporated.
Yes, I think it has good insight to how men and women view friendship and what role it plays in their lives. I definitely identified with a lot of what was said and it was nice to know I'm not alone on my search for a BBF.
No, but I enjoyed her tone and accents used in the book it kept it very interesting.
Yes! It was a little dry in some parts but overall I enjoyed it!
At the top! Loved this book and the voice made it come alive!
Rue - She was so small yet full of power and life and her last scene was very moving!
Effie Trinket hands down, I loved her performance SO much that when I saw the film later I was let down by the actor's performance :/
Lots! But Thresh letting Katniss live was very thrilling, sad and sweet.
Book performance SO much better than the movie.
Didn't read the print version.
I really enjoyed Bernice. She reminds me of my very southern aunts ;)
Her accents are great! I feel you get a better idea of each character due to the way she reads them.
I love the way the end of the book Nonni takes Fisher. Its a little mushy but it is near to my heart because once I had to stand up for a little girl and help raise her.
